Winning any type of silverware over the course of a season always needs to be considered a fine achievement. Winning more than one trophy is something that is reserved for the very best teams that football has to offer. Winning 2 or 3 trophies is tough because it requires a stunning level of consistency, not to mention luck. With so many games crammed into a relatively short space of time, managers need to be savvy in their team selections, while also hoping that their best players can stay healthy. It’s a tough job, and it explains why so many good teams often fall at hurdles along the way. Let’s have a look at this matchup to have a better idea on how these teams arrive into this affair so you can place your bets against their Bundesliga odds.
Monchengladbach Vs Bayern Game Info
Bayern Munich are still on course for 3 trophies this season, with one of them, the Bundesliga title, all but safely tucked away in their back pocket. It is going to be interesting to see how they manage their squad the rest of the way. That all begins this coming Saturday when they host Borussia Monchengladbach in what is not an easy encounter. Not surprisingly, Bayern Munich are in as a 1 ½ goal favorite, with the goal total for this one set at 3 ½.
Why bet on Bayern Munich
With a 7-point lead and just 4 games left to play, Bayern Munich are all but assured of yet another Bundesliga title. They are also now in the DFB Pokal Finals after a 2-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt on Wednesday afternoon, a game that was a little tougher than most of us expected. They are also still in the running for the Champions League, so you do wonder what type of team they will field on Saturday as they look to stay healthy for the run in. While Bayern are favorites here, this is a fixture that they have routinely had problems with. They lost 2-1 on the road to Monchengladbach earlier this season and have now lost 2 of their last 3 meetings with this opponent. At home this season, Bayern are 11-2-2, scoring 48 and surrendering just 13.
Why bet on Borussia Monchengladbach
The biggest prize that a team can get outside of a domestic title is a spot in the Champions League. Even just making it into the group stage of that competition means a staggering amount of money going into the coffers. Borussia are holding onto the 4th and final CL spot in the Bundesliga, but it is a tight battle. They are in real danger of sliding down into the Europa League spot, and while that is not a total disaster, it is Champions League play that is the goal. They are coming off a disappointing 1-0 road loss to Freiburg last week, and will be in the road again, where they have a record of 7-3-5, with 22 goals scored and 16 given up.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
While Bayern have, at times, struggled in games against Borussia Monchengladbach, they are a team in stunning form right now. I think they take one step closer to clinching the title with a win on Saturday afternoon.
